Last month the House of Concern Food Pantry in Seneca Falls set the kind of record they don’t like to see: they singed up a record number of new families at 41.
In addition to the need for food donations to restock the shelves, the Ad Hoc Development Committee of the House of Concern has been busy coming up with fund-raising opportunities to help bring in much needed cash to buy food to supplement what is donated. There will be a motorcycle rally this Saturday beginning at 11am at People’s Park, followed by a Chicken BBQ at Dewey’s Party House on Auburn Road beginning at 4:30. Tickets for each event are $10. Cyclists can register beginning at 10am in People’s Park along the Canal in downtown Seneca Falls. Car drivers are also welcome to participate.
Diane Draheim and Jim Snow talked on Tuesday morning with Jim Schreck on WNYR 98.5 about the House of Concern and the upcoming Motorcycle Rally and Chicken BBQ this Saturday and other matters.
The House of Concern will also be holding a Car Wash Fund-raiser at the Five Star Bank at the corner of 414 and 5&20 on Saturday the 16th. Volunteers from the Seneca Falls United Methodist Church will be providing the elbow grease.
